An examination of the Communist challenge from one "who regards Communism as one of the two most serious contenders for the dominance of the world." As a servant of the Church, seeking to promote the Christian case, the speaker regards it fitting that he should address the Communist challenge, out of a "deep concern for the true well being of our nation, and the larger family of nations both on this continent and throughout the world." A description of Communism as a world force, and an examination of that force and its development after Karl Marx. A look at Marx and Marxism. An analysis leading to certain conclusions that involve both Christians and Marxists. Drawing distinctions between the two. Offering doctrines of hope. The speaker's view of the writing on the wall of our contemporary history: the message is "Attend to your altars."
